This report presents the results of a population survey based on 4,317 one-one-one interviews conducted between March and May 2015 with randomly selected adults in 15 cities and Territoires in Ituri, North Kivu, and South Kivu. The margin of sampling error is ±5 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. The distribution of respondents and locations represented by the survey can be found below.

This poll is the second of a series of polls that will be conducted to provide reliable data and analysis on peace, security, justice and re-construction in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The project is a joint initiative of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with MONUSCO Civil Affairs. HHI is responsible for the data collection, and independent analysis, and reporting of the results, in collaboration with partners at the Université Libre des Pays des Grands Lacs, Université Catholique de Bukavu, and Univer-sité de Bunia.

Findings covered in the report: 

  • Wide support for operations against the FDLR, except in the areas concerned.
  • Doubts persist about the impact on peace
  • Stable sense of security, except in the city of Beni (NK) and Kabare (SK), Mambasa (Ituri)
  • Voting intentions are not affected by the poor perception of elected officials.
  • Illness and injuries after rape: a cause of exclusion
